Eastland has recently undergone a $665m transformation that is helping invigorate the urban centre of Maroondah, a 110,000 strong, 61 square kilometre district to the east of Melbourne. Sitting at the gateway to the Yarra Valley, the centre has revitalised the region and now draws over 13.4m* customer visits annually.

In addition to some of the world’s most well-known brands, the centre offers innovative public and civic spaces, like The Realm, a striking modernist building that houses a cafe, art gallery, and resource library containing more than 45,000 books as well as a feast of new technology, e-books, DVDs and free e-learning programs open to use for everyone.
